The Vendor Audit
Transparency delivered through in-depth analysis and oversight
The vendor audit is the key to quickly recovering lost capital. Our proprietary algorithms, coupled with our in-depth healthcare industry experience, provides the valuable insight required when analyzing a hospital’s vendor landscape. Our team of seasoned professionals recapture overpayments made to vendors while working to improve cash cycle operations
Errors, fraud, or inconsistencies in the vendor payment process can lead to significant financial loss over time. By conducting a thorough audit, these potential pitfalls are proactively identified and corrected. The audit also exposes any systemic flaws in the organization’s internal control architecture that may lead to repetitive mistakes, helping businesses optimize their operations for increased accuracy and efficiency.
The vendor audit also uncovers opportunities for cost savings. By scrutinizing vendor contracts and invoices, an audit can identify overpayments, erroneous payments, or opportunities for supplier discounts that might otherwise go unnoticed.

While all audit firms focus on the recovery, Archstone also wants to know how the overpayment occurred to begin with. Our team has in-depth practical knowledge of hospital operations and internal controls. On every overpayment, Archstone provides a thorough report on how to curtail the issue from occurring in the future. Our team doesn’t just want to recover the money, we want to prevent the problem from arising again in the future.
